E-Discovery & Records Management Teleconference: Reducing the Costs and Burdens of E-Discovery in Government Investigations

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

When a subpoena initiating a government investigation of your company lands on your desk, it's a dark and daunting day. At first blush, the expected drain on your company's resources can appear insurmountable. However, through careful planning, communication and negotiation with the government, your company can minimize its burdens while maintaining a cooperative posture in complying with the government's demands.

Mayer Brown attorneys, including an author of Mayer Brown's recently published Electronic Discovery Deskbook (PLI 2009) and a former federal prosecutor and SEC Enforcement attorney, will explain legal implications tied to the receipt of a government subpoena, the vital importance of document and electronic preservation, and practical guidance for minimizing the scope of the government's demands, including:

  • Insight into the government's perspective on the subpoena negotiation process
  • How to avoid typical pitfalls in complying with a government demand for documents and electronic data
